"A gripping read that is also witty and will keep you guessing ti"
5 stars"

After reading this remarkable book, I was astounded at how clever Agatha Christie is at strategizing and clever weaving such a mysterious plot. Agatha Christie knows how to keep the reader in the book at the right momentum. . I also loved the imaginative names created, loved the way she included a drawing plan, it was just a superb read, very gripping. The story starts off as The Orient Express train stops dead in its tracks, by a snowdrift, after which, a murder is committed. Who- And why- As Hercule Poirot investigates. I recommend this book to, as always, to Agatha Christie fans, if you are new to her books, this is a good one to start of with, to anyone who loves mysteries with a touch of wittyness and if you want a gripping read that keeps you guessing, then this one is for you.

Description

Agatha Christie's most famous murder mystery, reissued with a new cover to tie in with the hugely anticipated 2017 film adaptation. Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer. An American tycoon lies dead in his compartment, stabbed a dozen times, his door locked from the inside. Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer - in case he or she decides to strike again.

Author Biography

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
